Sun setting on US empire

Public Policy

Leading US economist Laurence Kotlikoff says he remains optimistic about solving the big structural problems plaguing global finance, but he has a grim prognosis for the US if it doesn’t change fiscal and monetary policies.

“We’re heading the way the British Empire went, its inevitable” he says. “The [US] dollar is going to give way to the Yuan as the global currency at some point, its just a matter of time.”

Kotlikoff is a Professor of Economics at Boston University and will be in New Zealand next week as the Sir Douglas Myers Visiting Professor to Auckland University.

He was named by The Economist as one of the world’s 25 most influential economists and in 2016 and that year he ran for the US Presidency as a write-in candidate.

He’s also a New York Times best-selling author.

While he has a strong reputation his ideas definitely sit outside the mainstream political views in the US.

“The global population is absolutely exploding, we’re adding a China in the next 20 years and then until the end of the century we’re adding three China’s in terms of population,” he says. “And most of that population is going to be concentrated in sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East.”

Kotlikoff argues that if we see productivity move up towards US levels in these regions – as we have seen in China in the past few decades – then we will see them dwarf the US economy by the end of the century.

“The biggest economies by the end of the century would be sub-Saharan Africa, followed by the India, followed by the Middle East, followed by China,” he says. “The US would go from about 15 per cent of GDP down to about five per cent.”

Exacerbating US woes is the fact it the country is effectively broke and is pushing the day of reckoning on that on to future generations by running enormous fiscal deficits, Kotlikoff argues.

He is no fan of President Trump’s new tax reforms, but in the broader context of America’s multi-trillion dollar deficits he doesn’t think they will make much difference.

“Each president is kicking the ball here and nobody is facing the reality of what’s coming. It’s going to end very badly for older people and younger people.”

It will become increasing difficult for the US to maintain its dominant global position and be “the policeman of the world, he says.

“I think the US is going to be forced to take a back seat. And we may not take that very well.”

Kotlikoff says the only way to address the deficits will be to raise real revenue – which will mean astronomical tax rates if the US stays on its current path.

“It’s another way of saying that the country is broke.”

Kotlikoff suggests “the power economics to solve future problems” as a headline for this article.

It’s a line that hints at an underlying sense of hope that more serious financial and economic reforms will be embraced eventually.

Since the global financial crisis he has been a strong advocate for more radical reform of the global financial system and wants to see it move away from highly leveraged lending which he sees perpetuating a cycle of boom and busts.

“We have to move away from this highly leveraged banking system, which is also highly opaque, to something which has no leverage.”

We were seeing central banks repeat low interest rate policies as they did prior to 2007, pushing up house prices and creating potential for a big crash.

“We can see some of the elements,” he said.

Kotlikoff advocates mutual fund banking, or what he calls “limited purpose banking”.

“It’s 100 per cent equity, mutual fund financed banking. So the entire finance system would just run through mutual funds.”

Most Americans are already doing most their banking with mutual funds, through their retirement accounts, he says.

While he accepts that the big banks wouldn’t like it, he argues that with the right regulation it would remove risk from the system and ensure that financial institutions couldn’t fail.

In the current system the global economy is constantly swinging “from irrational exuberance to irrational pessimism,” he says.

“It’s kind of like a bi-polar person There’s no inherent reason for an economy to have anything but steady growth. Technology is getting better all the time and we have more people in the. Inherently the world economy should grow. And it should grow smoothly.”

Professor Kotlikoff will present a seminar “Our Global Economic Future and How to Fix It” at Auckland University Business School next Tuesday at 2pm. For more information, please contact Professor Robert MacCulloch r.macculloch@auckland.ac.nz.

    What a joke from a star of the pseudoscience of economics. This guy actually believes first the economy will make it to the end of the century then that population is the key to the size of that economy????

  7. Mad Kat on Sun, 11th Feb 2018 4:58 pm 

    While I agree that the US empire is over, I disagree with the author’s assertion that it can continue to grow, “if only”. It already consumes/wastes ~25% of the world’s resources and they are going away. Tech is not the answer. Tech is too little, too late and usually causes more damage than it repairs.

    The US is going down. And it will not stop until it is at least level with the rest of the world. The Great Leveling I see happening, by design, not fate. Americans who do not seriously downsize and prepare will be in a world of hurt soon.

  8. Davy on Sun, 11th Feb 2018 5:05 pm 

    “The Great Leveling I see happening”

    Sure Billy, check your glasses. You have been saying this now going on 6 years. Besides, your little phrase is getting worn out. You have a tendency to run things into the ground.

    “… after 70 years of global dominion, America’s geopolitical command of the axial ends of Eurasia — the central pillars of its world power— seems to be crumbling in a matter of months….

    In the emerging field of artificial intelligence that will soon drive space warfare and cyber-warfare, the White House wants to reduce the 2018 budget for this critical research at the National Science Foundation to a paltry $175 million, even as Beijing is launching “a new multi-billion-dollar initiative” linked to building “military robots.” …”

    The US needs another string of Pyrrhic victories all at a cost of more than and not less than ten trillion dollars.

    It will make America great all over again.

    Not again!

    Wasn’t America great before all of these wars all of the time for years on end?

    Without a doubt, you would be the board nutbar Davy, and working for global research would be a compliment. The most prolific and highly accredited author would be Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, a far better American than you could ever dream of being.

    Finally MM, you’ve linked to a paper that I can agree with. Economic collapse, IMO, is likely to happen around 2025, give or take a few years. Anybody with any wherewithal should be preparing for it. Running around like a chicken with his head cut off, isn’t going to do you the least bit of good.

    Too bad overpopulation is the biggest taboo subject in the world and will never be talked about brought to the attention of the public.

  22. Theedrich on Sun, 11th Feb 2018 10:47 pm 

    Kotlikoff:  another clueless, money-only econonut.  Finance alone matters.  This “Leading US economist” opines that “The biggest economies by the end of the century would be sub-Saharan Africa, followed by the India, followed by the Middle East, followed by China, …”  It never occurs to this armchairist that: (1.) Intelligence plays an overwhelming role in developing an economy.  (Note that microstate North Korea now poses a danger — i.e., is existentially equivalent — to the U.S., whereas the vast tracts of 70-IQ sub-Sahara produce nothing but sob stories.)  (2.) Allahland will export only Sand Negroes after its oil gives out.  (3.) Civilizational dysgenics is furthered by anti-White governments in genosuicidal Whitelands (e.g., the psychotic Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel).  (4.) Retro-evolution due to Yid-Cretinity will produce a Planet of the Apes, with all that that implies for civilization.

    Blather on, o Heeb driveler.

  23. MASTERMIND on Sun, 11th Feb 2018 10:51 pm 

    Thedrich

    Technically humans are apes so we already have a planet of the apes.

  24. GregT on Sun, 11th Feb 2018 11:34 pm 

    “Too bad overpopulation is the biggest taboo subject in the world and will never be talked about brought to the attention of the public.”

    Agreed. Move as far away from densely populated areas as you can. With 80 million more humans added to the biosphere each and every year, everywhere is going to become more populated.

    And in case you haven’t already clued in, that would be the entire population of the US in ~ four years.

    It’s not exactly rocket science dude.

  25. GregT on Mon, 12th Feb 2018 12:03 am 

    Two more things MM,

    1: Whether you agree with him or not, Theedrich is obviously the most intelligent poster on this forum.

    2: Densely populated areas that know nothing other than the drive to work, shop, consume lifestyles, are really going to be fucked.

  26. Cloggie on Mon, 12th Feb 2018 12:16 am 

    As usual I agree with Threedrich. To the defense of Kotlikof: here is finally a Heeb who at least considers the possibility that his tax farm could in fact bite the dust. It’s a start as compared to Carl Bernstein’s “Jewish Neocons” (“and perhaps I can say that because I am a Jew”)…

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRlatDWqh0o

    That’s the same Bernstein who brought down Nixon after the latter had conspired with Billy Graham to “do something about the Jews” after his reelection:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2002/03/17/us/billy-graham-responds-to-lingering-anger-over-1972-remarks-on-jews.html

    Ah well, in contrast to JFK, they didn’t shoot Nixon.

    The idea that Sub-Saharan Africa could take over the world’s economy is ridiculous. Kotlikof remains a Heeb, hence a Marxist, although it is unlikely he believes his own bullshit, he’s too smart for that; his remarks are intended for the egalitarian likes of Davy and boat, who love to swallow these nonsense, as they swallowed all the nonsense coming from Washington over the last 100 years.

    But Kotlikof fits in the growing number of koshers, like Kunstler, Bernstein, Bloomberg, who all show signs that they realize that the US-led NWO is walking on its last legs and that the US is about to be downsized to become a normal country and everybody outside the US with a brain knows it and is preparing for it… from China to Russia, Philippines, Iran, Turkey, EU, etc., etc., etc., not too mention even some within the US itself:

    The downfall of the US empire will have enormous repercussions for geopolitics as the post-WW2 order will evaporate and replaced by a multi-polar world order…

    …not based on 20th century kosher-derived progressive ideologies (USA-multicult/USSR-bolshevism), but on a reactionary looking back to ancient times and millennia old identities and belief systems.

    Summing it up: IS beating Leon Trotsky.

    It is only in the US itself that many would still love to believe in MAGA-dreams. Quite an “exceptionalist” belief for a country that below 10 years old no longer is a majority white country and as such won’t be able to continue to live up to first world standards:

    Good morning Cloggie, Sir,

    I am unable to formulate a coherent argument in defence of my position, therefore I concede. You win again.

For you the act of anti-American stalking, pricking and enabling gets you all flushed with satisfaction. Greggie, what matters though is can you say anything. Any asshole like you can stalk, prick, and enable but showing intelligence is another story. I don’t see anything out of you. I am impressed with the nedernazi when he is not being a disgusting person he does contribute. You don’t and what’s worse is you are an asshole that enables assholes. This makes you antii-intelligence.

    “what matters though is can you say anything.”

    Can you make any positive statement about WW2?

    Asking the question is answering it.

    Greg is a prepper and most preppers are fundamentalist religious nutters! Did you see him yesterday freaking out screaming “Get the hell out of the cities”…lol

    Davy is a prepper, makati is, ghung is and to a limited extent #metoo.

    There is no relationship between prepperism and religeous fundamentalism.

    Wrong again.

    China is an economic basket case waiting for the bottom to fall out.
    Kotlikoff, like most economists, does not have a proper grasp of reality. Politicians take their advice only because, it supports their delusions of perpetual growth.
